This paper describes the development and application of a methodology for the evaluation of an active bus-priority signal system. Results from a demonstration project show the impact of a bus-priority scheme on intersection delay and delay variability. Two new measures, perceived delay and budgeted delay, are introduced and are shown to have important implications in the evaluation of bus priority and other transportation system management schemes. We conclude that active bus priority is justified under a wider range of conditions than has hitherto been considered to be the case.
